What are some features of your dental practice?

We are a 3 office general dental group.  6-7 full time equivalent doctors.  Offices are located each approximately 30-35 minutes from each other.  Associates usually have a home base office, but may be asked to occasionally cover in the other offices for sick or vacation days of the other doctors. We have some doctors that prefer to split their time between 2 offices, and if this is desired, we may be able to make arrangements for that.  Between the 3 offices, we have 30 fully equipped modern operatories.   Each office is staffed with 2 assisted dental hygienists, and enough dental assistants to maintain productivity.  There is a Sirona Cone Beam machine in each office.  Each office has an Itero scanner, and each office also has a Trios 3 scanner.  Our preference is to send scans to labs rather than impressions.    There are also 2 diode lasers available for use in each office.

We use EFDA dental assistants, and have several fully trained, permitted, and seasoned  expanded function dental assistants. We use these assistants to leverage the doctor's time and productivity.  EFDA permitted assistants can fill and trim operative dentistry restorations, make scans/impressions for fixed and removable prosthetics, fit and cement permanent crowns and bridges, and a host of other portions of procedures under the supervision of the doctors.  We have a training system to get any assistants we have working for us to pass the Missouri basic skills test, and once they pass it, we pay for all of their training and permits for expanded functions.

We are a busy 3 office general dental group that is in the process of producing and collecting in the $7.5-7.6M range for 2023.  We have maintained a 20% average year over year growth rate for the last 8 years.  Most doctors that have been with us for more than one full calendar year are making in the $270-280K per year range.  We have 4 associates that will make over 300k this year in 2023.  We do great dentistry, with above average quality of clinical results.  Owner/mentor doctor has 39 years experience in dentistry and 19 years running multiple practices and mentoring associates.  Owner doctor is MAGD FICOI FDOCS.

What procedures will the associate be doing?

Associates will be doing a full range of general dentistry procedures.  We practice in an area with significant decay incidence.  Associates perform quite a bit of endo using the Sirona Wave One system. We also do quite a bit of operative dentistry and crown and bridge.  Associates also do quite a bit of oral surgery including some surgical extractions and easier partial bony impactions.  We do socket preservation bone grafts in preparation for later implant placement.  We do place and restore quite a few implants.  We do orthodontics in the form of Invisalign and a braces system called Fast Braces.  We have a customized continuing education program during the first 18-24 months of experience in our group to train associates in any procedures we are doing that they have not been previously performing.  We pay for travel, lodging, tuition, and meals for the associates to go to these CE events.  There is also opportunity for associates to learn how to do oral conscious sedation dentistry via training with the DOCS organization.  Several of our associates have enteral conscious sedation permits.  Owner doctor has parenteral conscious sedation permit.  We also do quite a bit of minimal sedation which does not require a permit.  We keep in house many procedures that many general dental practices refer out for specialty care.
